A month of mountain hiking in Queenstown

Yes I went again for a month this time.

I spent 3 weeks living in a tent half way up a mountain. The elevation was 1,748 m (5,735 ft) minus 1000 ft which is the altitude of lake Wakatipu.

That means every time I hiked up to my tent I climbed 2300 feet – I did this probably 17 times during the month which comes to a climb of nearly 40,000ft.

No wonder I got a bit skinny by the end of it.

Anyway here are the pix.
